pressupdate: retrofit for operator technology and control console system

Customer "Aller Trykk" in Norway receives the latest drive and control console technology on its LITHOMAN

(PresseBox) ( Augsburg, )
manroland web systems develops integrated solutions for retrofits on older printing presses to reduce press downtimes and associated costs while boosting the performance of the printing system.

Retrofits increase a printing system's availability and keep its automation up to date. A retrofit optimizes system performance, combined with higher product quality and fewer production standstills.

Quantum leap in control, operator and drive technology

As the OMEGA DC drive system was getting on a bit, it was replaced with the latest SIEMENS drive technology. The customer benefits from increased support and stability through better diagnostic capabilities and improved synchronous run of the drive system. Web tension issues have become a thing of the past. State-of-the-art server technology from manroland web systems has been used for the control console system. The customer thus obtained the most up-to-date hardware, similar to a new printing press. In addition to the substantial improvement in press availability, the new PECOM functionalities also enhance operating comfort.

Kolbjoern J. Vogt, Service Manager at Aller Trykk in Oslo, explains: "The reason for this investment was to minimize production downtime, to improve the drive system, and to extend the lifespan of our equipment. Thanks to its outstanding project planning and implementation, we only needed minimal production adjustment. It was clear to see that manroland web systems is an excellent partner for conversions. Highly qualified technicians from manroland web systems cooperated perfectly with our staff. This provided us with the certainty we needed during the entire conversion process." Since the retrofit, operation of the printing press has been absolutely stable and reliable.

Operating comfort at the control console

The quantum leap can also be felt when operating the control console. Support provided by the TSC team from manroland web systems is now being used even more effectively. "Training for our staff was very professional and efficient. All documentation was updated and returned promptly. Once again, we have a LITHOMAN that will continue to deliver its usual high level of performance and excellent print quality, now and in the future," summarizes Kolbjoern J. Vogt.
